    Hi Karla,

    I also applied for the midwifery track, and am a doula as well, hence the screen name I haven't taken clients for the past few months because I've been knee-deep in pre-reqs (I'm applying to OHSU, too), and I really miss birth!! It'll be nice to actually start a program and be on my way to attending births again... Did you apply to any other schools? Waiting to hear from UCSF is definitely stressful, but my heart is set on OHSU. Good luck to you!!

    Hello everyone! I applied to the FNP specialty. Did anyone else? I was a bit hesitant at first, since I kept reading about how competitive of a specialty it was. Also, I'm wondering what constitutes direct patient care experience. I keep reading about how important it is. I've been volunteering as a counselor for the past couple of years in a free clinic. Does that count?

    Hi Liz.C-

    I've also applied to the FNP track! It's my impression that direct patient care can take many forms - including working with patients as a counselor or something more hands-on (like taking vitals signs and wound care, for instance). I definitely think your experience as a counselor (especially at a free clinic) counts! I'm currently doing something very similar (I'm a parent educator for a non-profit agency), so we'll see!

    I'm gonna throw out a little cliche here...

    Can't we all just get along?!?!?!

    I know everyone is really anxious (I am too) but let's try to keep it positive and encouraging folks!

    It's probably too early to ask but by any chance has anyone heard any news from UCSF?

    Hello <echo, echo, echo, echo>

    Its been so quiet in here....everyone studying for A&P finals or something?

    I suppose that nobody heard anything today <sigh>

    So, anyway, my house is literally one of the last in town to get mail...usually around 5:45PM. If someone gets their mail earlier in the day and gets their letter...will you post on here, so I pay the appropriate homage to the mailbox deities before opening it up?

    Just FYI... I looked back at threads from the past two years to get an idea of when people started getting their interview letters.

    In 2005, the first post about hearing anything was on Dec. 16th. In 2006, the first post was on Dec. 19th. So it looks like we have about one more week to go.

    They sure cut it close to the holidays - bah humbug!

    seriously! it makes it hard for anyone who has a long way to travel... I can just *feel* the flight prices going up with each passing day... oh well, there is absolutely nothing we can do but wait.
